Positive Vitality Swiss Chard Rolls

Recipe Ingredients

  • Chard / Cabbage, raw x 1
  • Humus home-made x 6 heaped Tbs see recipe here
  • Parsley Pesto with Ginger x 6tsp see recipe here
  • White rice, easy, boiled x 6Tbs heaped


Cooking Instructions & Notes

  1. Prepare the homemade humus and parsley and ginger pesto.

Alternatively you can use humus and pesto both in shop.

Personally I think that nothing will beat the home made taste and it’s better value for money as well.

  1. Wash and lightly steam the chard/cabbage (chard has softer leaves than cabbage that’s why requires less steaming time, approx.2min).
  2. Carefully place all leaves on the plate.
  3. Prepare 2 plates: on one you will be rolling up the rolls with filling and on the second one you will place the ready rolls.
  4. Put one chard leave on the plate, in the middle place 1/2Tbs of rice, than 1/2tsp of pesto and 1/2Tbs of humus and roll all together.

Bear in mind that chard leaves are quite small and you will have to use more fillings for bigger leaves, like cabbage.

I made my humus and pesto with extra virgin olive oil and flax oil, both shouldn’t be heated, so I was serving it cold.

If you prefer to eat it as a warm dish (place in the oven for 5-10min at 150C) do not use extra virgin oils.

Store in a fridge for up to 1 week
